Looking for an Au Pair in Long Island, New York?
With over 30 years of experience, EurAupair was one of the first au pair programs to become designated by the U. S. Department of State to legally sponsor au pairs to come to the United States, and has placed tens of thousands of au pairs across the country including in the Long Island area.
EurAupair is an affordable child care option, making it a real value for such flexible, loving, in-home care. And, unlike other forms of child care, the fee is for children of all ages, and per family - not per child.
Local Support from EurAupair Community Counselors
Following the receipt of your application form, a local Community Counselor from the Long Island area will be assigned to your family. The Community Counselor is available to answer any questions and provide assistance to both you and your au pair throughout your year together.
"I became a Community Counselor because I was a Rotary exchange student for a year in Quito, Ecuador and although it was not the same as being an au pair, I did live with two different families for a year. My experience was wonderful and unforgettable, however living in a culture different from your own for that long is challenging. I love meeting people from other countries and sharing stories as well as trials and tribulations of living abroad. I enjoy meeting with the families to guide them in this next experience as well." from Community Counselor Meredith Doyle.
Some examples of monthly au pair meetings in the area include: Visit museums, Old Westbury Gardens, Caleb Smith State Park Preserve, Coney Island, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, New York Aquarium, shopping.
Education for your Au Pair
U.S. government regulations require that au pairs be provided with opportunities for cultural and educational enrichment. Au pairs must complete 6 units of academic coursework at an accredited, post-secondary institution.
